Bill from Indy provided some details about that Dutch song I played:

Ron,

I listened to and loved your show. When I heard the song, Tiet veur 'un pafke! I knew it was Dutch, but I had a hard time understanding it, and for good reason. It is in a dialect. Translated, it means, "Time for a smoke". The chorus goes, "Time for a smoke, time for a beer, It's good being together, It's time for fun." This song reminded me a lot of a song more recently done by people from the comedy show, Kopspijkers (Nail heads) called "I Wanna Be A One Day Fly" by One Day Fly. They were bad of purpose, but the song served it's purpose, they knocked a boy band/reality TV band off the #1 spot by mocking them. It was a really bad song, on purpose.

So I did a little digging and found that Harko + Pao are really Henk Spaan and Harry Vermeegen, two sports journalists who had a political satire TV show called Pisa. Tiet veur 'un pafke! is one of their 5 top 20 hits in the mid to late 80s under various names. Why the songs were popular at all is a mystery, although the TV show was probably a popular enough vehicle to propel them up the charts. Now you know.

Keep doing great shows,
Bill from Indy
